Napoleon Hill's Thought for the Day

Napoleon Hill's Thought for the Day:

You will never be greater than the thoughts that dominate your mind.

If it’s true that you become what you think about most, it follows that the quantity and quality of success you achieve in your life will be in direct proportion to the size of your thoughts. If you allow your mind to be dominated by trivial matters, your achievements are likely to be unimportant. Discipline yourself to think about important things. Keep up with what’s new in your field and with what’s going on in the world. Make a list of good ideas that you can use anytime you are searching for a creative solution to a problem. Remember, small minds think about things; great minds think about ideas.

Napoleon Hill's Thought for the Day

Beware of him who tries to poison your mind against another under the pretense of helping you. The chances are a thousand to one he is trying to help himself.

South African poet and painter Breyten Breytenback tells of a black man named Freedom who was the property of a one-legged slave owner in the days before the abolition of slavery. Whenever the owner bought a new pair of shoes, he gave the left one, which he couldn’t use, to Freedom. Eventually, wearing two left shoes deformed Freedom’s right foot, and he was permanently crippled by the “generosity” of his master. Don’t be fooled by people who attempt to further their own interests under the guise of helping you. Listen to advice from others, thank them for their interest, and make up your own mind about what is best. Follow their advice if it fits with your plan for your life, but don’t hesitate to discard it if it doesn’t. In all the world, there is only one individual who knows what is best for you, and that person is you.

Napoleon Hill's Thought for the Day

You can do it if you believe you can.

It’s called a “self-fulfilling prophecy” when something occurs because we believe it will. The mind is constructed so that it constantly seeks to bring into physical reality the things it thinks about most. Most of us will never realize the tremendous potential we possess — because we are unwilling to believe that we can accomplish things that others believe are impossible. “Impossible” jobs require more effort and greater concentration, but when they are completed, the rewards — both financial and psychic — are commensurate with the effort required. You may not be able to achieve everything you’d like, but you won’t accomplish anything unless you believe you can

Motivational Monday

If you don’t know what you want from life, what do you think you will get?

The great majority of people in the world drift through life, never realizing that their future will be the one they create for themselves. The minority who achieve great success are people who know what they want and have a plan for realizing their objectives. They know what they want and how they are going to get it. Your goals should be specific, they should be measurable, they should have a deadline for their achievement, and they should be divided into manageable pieces. Know exactly what you plan to achieve, when you plan to achieve it, and how. Review your progress regularly, correct your course when necessary, and never, ever give up.

Five free Stanford classes on entrepreneurship, innovation, finance, and education

1- Technology Entrepreneurship, Chuck Eesley. Starting October 15th.
This course introduces the fundamentals of technology entrepreneurship, pioneered in Silicon Valley and now spreading across the world. This is the second offering of the class. Last time, nearly 40,000 students from around the world participated and worked in teams together. The top teams were matched with Silicon Valley mentors, and the best teams at the end of the class pitched their ideas to investors. Many of the alumni of the last class are continuing to build their startups and will be mentoring teams this time.

2- Crash Course on Creativity, Tina Seelig. Starting October 17th.
In this course, Tina Seelig reveals a set of tools and conditions that we each control - our Innovation Engine - that allows us to increase our own creativity and that of our teams and organizations. She shows that just as the scientific method demystifies the process of discovery, there is a formal process for unlocking the pathway to invention.
Register at
3- Finance, Kay Giesecke. Starting October 15th.
This class introduces the basic concepts of modern finance and their practical application. Learn about financial markets and securities, how to rank investment alternatives, use different interest rates, immunize a bond portfolio, measure financial risk, and structure a stock portfolio optimally. Apply your learning in a project involving actual security market data.
Register at
4- Start up Boards. Clint Korver. Starting October 15th.
The class helps you accelerate your startup through hands-on guidance from a board of peers and experts custom-built for your venture. You will learn how the most successful startups seek guidance from the smartest people in their industry to avoid common startup traps.

5- Designing a New Learning Environment, Paul Kim. Starting October 15th.
What constitutes learning in the 21st century? Should reading, watching, memorizing facts, and then taking exams be the only way to learn? Or could technology (used effectively) make learning more interactive, collaborative, and constructive? The ultimate goal of this project-based course is to promote systematic design thinking that will cause a paradigm shift in the learning environments of today and tomorrow.
Register at
All the above classes are offered on Venture Lab (, a unique platform developed by Stanford faculty Amin Saberi and students with a strong focus on collaboration and experiential learning. In all of the above classes, students form teams and work together on real world projects.
